The article reports on empirical research into the differences in child-rearing practices between present-day families and families living at the turn of the 21st century. The concept of child-rearing practices is addressed from the point of view of social theories of learning and socio-cognitive theories which constituted the basis for the research discussed. Results show that a portion of practices significantly differs in each group, and a portion remains unchanged. The biggest difference concerns ‘deferment of gratification’ as a factor for the development of many social skills. In the present-day family group this child-rearing effect has largely disappeared.
The presented study aims to investigate the impact of cultural intelligence on management effectiveness and conflict management styles. The target population of this research includes all senior managers of universities and higher education institutions in Urmia. The nature of the study requires the use of a descriptive-correlational research method. Findings of the study show that there is a significant relationship between cultural intelligence and management effectiveness. Results of stepwise regression analysis show that components of cultural intelligence allow for predicting the avoidance style. Moreover, among the components of cultural intelligence only the metacognitive cultural intelligence allows for predicting management effectiveness.
The study presents a critical analysis of visual materials contained in civic education textbooks with the purpose to identify traits of discrimination of individuals with a “skin colour” other than “white”. The undertaken quantitative and qualitative analyses allowed for drawing a conclusion that the depiction of persons in the researched visual material did in fact bear certain traits of discrimination. Moreover, it was concluded that what may be observed is compound discrimination. The studies presented in the article were conducted within a larger-scale project entitled Gender in textbooks.
The purpose of this study was to investigate intercultural sensitivity among nursing students in Turkey. This study is a cross-sectional study. It was conducted with nursing students at a university in Ankara. The sample comprised 152 nursing students at the university. This study was carried out between May 2013 and June 2013. Data were collected using an Interview Questionnaire and Intercultural Sensitivity Scale. The data were analysed using frequency, independent t-test and one-way ANOVA. The study found out that the nursing students had higher scores of cultural sensitivity (88.92 ± 12.20). It was found that senior year students, the students who speak a foreign language and the students who had chosen the school willingly had higher scores of cultural sensibility (p < 0.05). The study found that the nursing students had higher scores of cultural sensivility. To increase intercultural sensitivity of nursing students it is recommended that the maintenance strategies and the concept of intercultural sensitivity should be integrated in the curriculum of nursing education and postgraduate training programs.
The purpose of the presented study was to recognise mutual relations between students’ self-education activity and their sense of the meaning of life. The answer to the question: What is the sense of the meaning of life among students of high, average and low levels of self-education activity? was sought. In the study, the estimation method was used. Students’ level of self-education activity was measured on the basis of the Self-education Activity Scale (SAS), created by the author, whereas in order to define the level of the sense of the meaning of life, J.C.Crumbagh and L.T.Macholicka’s Meaning of Life Sense Scale, adapted to the Polish reality by Z. Płużek, was used. Analysis showed a relationship between the above-mentioned variables, in particular in terms of one’s sense of life and assessment of its value. As for the other components of the sense of the meaning of life level: self-esteem and approach towards death and suicide, no significant dependencies were observed.
The article suggested considering certain components of the professional competence as fuzzy sets and strictly the professional competence as a universal fuzzy set. A model of the projection of a fuzzy individual professional educational trajectory (FIPET) on the basis of modalities is “essentially” and “possibly” presented. The mathematical solution to the problem of the optimum choice of courses of the career enhancement on the basis of the expert estimation of the level of professional competence and one’s own preferences of a trainee is proposed.
The article analyses the concept of data, presents various purposes of working with data in schools and deals with the readiness of people at school to work with data. In the final part the article summarizes selected results of a pilot survey carried out in Czech schools and abroad, focused on finding out how and with what data schools work, which attitudes school leaders adopt towards this activity, how those respondents evaluate their own readiness for work with data and which needs they express in this respect.
Contemporary school is inconceivable without the integrated interactive learning tools and information communication technologies (hereinafter referred to as ICT) in the education process. However, according to research, ICT integration in the learning process is insufficient. The aim of this research is to analyse the experience of pedagogues in using ICT during lessons.
